[xquery-talk] html serialization

the HTML specification (http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/) says that div,  
textarea, and script tags require an end tag to be present. It seems  
to me that this doesn't allow those tags to be empty element tags  
(e.g. <script/>). However, the HTML serialization chapter of the XSLT  
and XQuery serialization specification (http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt-xquery-serialization/ 
) doesn't define this. It only defines elements that must not have an  
end-tag for empty elements.

Am I missing something here? Do you think that this should be added to  
the serialization specification?

Thanks in advance
